Photo of the Week - Camposcia retusa

Decorator Crabs (Camposcia retusa) are very unique critters to add to aquariums. They'll pick up just about anything they can lift and attach it to themselves as camouflage. This means that occasionally snails and hermit crabs go for a ride on them and some of them will end up covered with zoanthids. That latest fact is something you should keep in mind if you are pondering adding them to an aquarium with a large population of polyp type corals.
